Advancing Innovation in Blockchain & IoT.
Chain of Things (CoT) is developing Maru - a full stack integrated blockchain+IoT Hardware as a Service (HaaS) solution to IoT's primary issues with IDENTITY, SECURITY, and INTEROPERABILITY. We are leveraging the nexus between blockchain and IoT to develop, PoC, and commercially deploy brand new environmental, humanitarian, security, & efficiency related Internet of Things applications.
A Flexible Blockchain+IoT Platform for Open Standards
IoT suffers from potential systemic failures as it scales with disastrous consequences. Without an openly stress tested baseline protocol standard for trusted IoT interaction, fundamental security risks will become exponentially worse as 50-200 billion cheap connected devices come online by 2020. Conventional wisdom also suggests a standards war will fragment the industry into a series of proprietary protocol sandboxes, slowing development and pricing out many startups entering the sector. The process begins with a universal standard of device identity, which will unlock security and interoperability.
It’s basically a distributed & immutable ‘Google Spreadsheet’ of events. The blockchain is an evolution of the network server model in that it is a distributed database structure with a secure write-forward authentication system for adding data and without a single point of failure evident in traditional database structures. With the blockchain, any computer, server or device that participates in the network gains a copy of the ledger. These blockchain devices form the points of the network and can be described as ‘nodes’. Through nodes, users can update or input information into the ledger without going to a third party, giving much more power and flexibility to individual participants in the network.
If you are interested in any of the Case Studies above or if you are interested in initiating a new Case Study please fill in the form below.
Note that by default ALL of our Case Studies are open and shared with all partners within the group with the results of the Case Study made available to the public. We are able to adapt the format of a case study to suit the requirements of the main sponsor or stakeholder.
Facilities available: CoT has access to full design and manufacturing capabilities for blockchain IoT sensor devices that can be used for a particular Case Study. If a bespoke device is required for a particular deployment that can be provided too.
